. what's decided here, the balance of power here will have a huge impact on what gets done in washington over the next four years. let's take our camera up high and show you the current balance. the republicans have 47 seats in red here, you see that strip of blue in the back? that is the democratic advantage. when you include the independent senators who caucus with the democrats they had 53 seats and that gives them the majority. also, they have the white house, with president obama, of course. and the republicans have one strong hold, that is the u.s. house of representatives where they have the majority. if nothing changes here, and president obama gets re-elected, what can we expect to see here in the u.s. senate? well, a lot of the same maneuvering and bickering as we've seen before, i imagine. but also, a new agenda. one of the first things on president obama's agenda, higher taxes on the wealthy. he talked about this as making the economy more fair and getting it moving again. here's another item, immigration reform. he took a lot of heat not getting this done the first time afte
was in an obama campaign headquarters on the outskirts of the washington metropolitan area in virginia and i was impressed by the methodical nature of what they did and also the distributed nature of what they did. in other words, everybody didn't come to headquarters. the materials, the lists, the walking lists and so forth were all in homes around the region. in other words, people in their individual homes and neighborhoods became the effective campaign headquarters for those areas. they have built on what they did in 2008. they do have a superb ground game. it's going to depend on them getting their own people out in all of these states. they have it divided in terms of types of voters. they have it divided by location. the analogy i use goes to the way the israelis operate in the desert. they don't have a lot of water, but they drop a droplet of water on every seed. the romney campaign theory is the older fashioned wave tv advertising, psychology, tie goes to the challenger situation. but it's such a closely divided country where everybody is microtargeting. maybe that old wave theory j

editor of the grio and ryan grim, washington bureau chief for "the huffington post." joy, i want to go to you first in terms of the akin and mourdock races, these guys can't help but stepping in it and now it seems like the chickens are coming home to roost. >> thanks to crazy, democrats are going to hold on to the seat. thank you, crazy. i think it's good that these guys ran in the sense that it has ripped the veil off of something that particularly younger women, a lot of democrats either didn't know or didn't want to think about, which is that you have a hard core religious element within the republican party that does believe that women should not be making basic choices about their health care and that women have ruined the workforce for being in it. >> and women being dragged around by their hair and so forth? >> indeed. i'm predicting that mccaskill will do better than that margin. a lot of people say they are going to vote for republican but i have a pretty good feeling she is going to do well. >> ryan, it's amazing how it's turned the departure of senior leadership, the republ
it comes to building different and better coalitions in washington, finding his own versions of moderate republicans to come with him. the question is, did he learn lessons if he wins a second term? and maybe are there better ways of building coalitions outside of washington, trying to go to certain places and certain states and trying to overperform in certain states. >> if he wins on tuesday night, he was able to get support because of things he did, killing bin laden, helping out hispanic kids brought to this country at an early age, these are things he did, the thing he did with governor christie the other day, these are actual doing things. >> i think the lesson is, if he wins one of the top two or three factors will be the auto rescue. that is key to ohio. if he keeps ohio, it's because of the automobiles and the fact that you can see automobiles on the street. you can see chrysler and dodge cars on the street. that's tangible and that is probably his best piece of tangible legislation. >> the one thing that you're getting at here, chris, what smir conish found out the hard way, th
the republican mayor ordered them closed. joining me now from washington is karen finney a former dnc director, msnbc political analyst. and here with me is the great eugene robinson. welcome to both of you. gene, these long lines in florida are there because rick scott decided to cut the early voting days almost in half. 2.5 million people have voted early. yet we're expected to believe this has got nothing to do with politics. what is this man doing? >> well, there are two american traditions here at work. one is vote k problems in florida. this is something we like to do. and the second is republicans trying to restrict the franchise. if you can narrow the electorate and keep those democratic people, the system and throughout this election cycle we're seeing more of it. >> eugene, you use a voice that sounds accepting. this is appalling. >> i don't mean to. it is appalling. we've seen it before. >> people died in 1965 for the right to vote and now they're being prevented from doing so. >> exactly. exactly. >> karen, in ohio the big story is the states provisional ballot. the republican in c
. the president was right the other day when he said he can't change washington from the inside, only from the outside. we will give him that chance soon. >> now, when i'm elected, i'm going to work with republicans and democrats in congress, i'm going to meet regularly with leaders and identify the good men and women on both sides of the aisle that care more about the country than they do about politics. now, the president were to be reelected, he's of course going to continue his war on oil, coal, and natural gas and when i'm elected we're going to change course and energy to build jobs and help with prices at the pump and achieve north american independency in eight years. now, if the president were to be reelected he'd continue to crush small business with his plan to raise taxes, expand regulations to impose obamacare. i care about small business. i see it as a means for people to fulfill their dreams. last week, i met rota elliott, virginia, richmond. she's been running her family restaurants for years, the business has been in her family, bill's barbecue for 82 years and at that po

on the ballot in the november election. the system is p currently used in louisiana, washington state, and california. it is now a ballot member prop 21. what is your position on the top two primary system and why? >> we'll start with jill stein. >> thank you. and thank you so much to free & equal, and thank you for being here. i think top two does not enlarge our democracy. in many ways, it confuses things more. it puts many candidates onto the ballot all together, and it arbitrarily attaches party labels to them. any candidate can choose any label they want. so it really degrades the meaning of our political parties, where they have meaning, and i know they don't always, but there are some that do have meaning that aren't bought and sold to the highest bidder, and the green party is one of those parties. and i know there are some other parties here as well, the independent parties, where the parties actually represent real values. and the top two obscures the meaning of those parties, and it puts everyone together, so you really can't tell who is representing you, and whoever hats

: one of the things that people really hope that obama would bring to washington would be a new approach to working across the aisle to being bipartisan and too caring about the other half of the country that did not vote for him. one of the criticisms of him has been that instead of doing that when we got there, he rammed obamacare down the throats of the american people who did not want without a single republican vote in his favor. he changed the rules in the senate to pass it through without a senate vote of 60 in the senate. and focus on health care, which was so divisive. people's health care instead of jobs. were your thoughts on? >> i have been into virginia and north carolina would last for weeks. you know, i don't know what the statistics say, but i will tell you that they have registered over 400,000 new democratic voters in north carolina and they have turned out and registered a record number of voters in virginia. megyn: does anyone recognize you when you knock on the door? >> actually, i would like to say that this show has made me an international celebrity, but it has no
